The Canvas Teacher app allows instructors to manage their courses and use Canvas more efficiently from a mobile device. The Canvas Teacher app is available for Android and iOS devices.
Canvas Teacher replaces the existing Android and iOS SpeedGrader apps. Instructors may continue to use the legacy SpeedGrader app, though it will no longer be supported. Additionally, the Android Canvas Teacher Tools app has been discontinued.
The Teacher app provides quick access for grading submissions, communicating with students, and updating course content through Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes.
Instructors can browse submissions and provide feedback to their students with a new and improved mobile SpeedGrader embedded in the app.
Communicate with students
Instructors can post announcements, send messages, and participate in course discussions. Canvas Teacher includes the Message Students Who feature from the web version of Canvas and allows teachers to easily send messages to students about specific course assignments.
Instructors can easily update existing course assignments including due dates and spelling errors. You can also publish assignments, manage discussion settings, and adjust quiz options.
Download and open the Canvas Teacher app as you would for any application on your Android or iOS phone.
Be sure to download “Canvas Teacher” by Instructure Inc.
In the "Find your school or district" box, type Ohio State University.

The application will remember who you are until you deliberately log out of the application.
